Anointing Fire Catholic Ministries, UK (AFCM, UK) initiated Home Mission in order to visit families all around the country and speak to them about its various ministries such as, retreats, conventions, gatherings etc. The ministry will assign a team which comprises of lay evangelists from the ministry and send them to the destination of the mission to be conducted. Home Mission is primarily equipped for passing on the message of a particular spiritual event that will be taking place in one’s city in the near future. Basically the team will visit every allocated house of the city, speak to the entire family about the approaching event, for example, a convention, and encourage them to attend it as a family. On the other hand, this mission also enables the AFCM, UK team to visit houses and families to pray and worship the Lord in unity and togetherness.

sehion-prayerINTERCESSION MINISTRY The intercession ministry is focused on the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Second Saturday Convention. St Paul urges his Christians to ‘pray without ceasing’ (1 Thes 5:17). People fast and pray every day for the success of this Convention. Groups of people undertake chain fasting and group prayers for this intention. Another development is the formation of Cell Groups which gather weekly, fortnightly or even monthly in different areas to pray for the Convention. A well-established practice is the monthly 24-hour chain rosary. Night vigils in front of the Blessed Sacrament in different places are frequently conducted. During the vigil service volunteers offer prayers for people’s special intentions. Prayer requests submitted during the Convention are collected and prayed over by the intercession team. People send in their requests through phone calls, text messages and other means. Ministry members frequently assemble to pray and arrange chain fasting and prayer services among families and small community gatherings to intercede for the success of the different ministries of AFCM,UK. When concerted prayers rise up to heaven, the Holy Spirit showers His blessings in abundance. “More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.” Prayer enables us to transform the world, because it transforms us. As the Bible says, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." (John 15:12). If you feel you want to be a part of the Intercession Ministry, you are more than welcome to join us. You can simply email us at, and we'll be in touch with you as soon as possible. Let us all love our brothers and pray for their needs. Contact: Mr. Ani : +44 7958 745246

Training/Leaders Programmesyouth-sehionUK

Retreats and training programs are conducted regularly for all our ministers and people who wish to join the ministry to serve the Lord. These are occasions where they get to stay in grace, meditate and to discern the Will of God. No service survives without personal prayer, intercession and meditation. These retreats help all our ministers to stay strong in their spiritual life and to respond well to their call for evangelisation. If the Holy Spirit inspires you to join the team, you can talk to any of the team members during any of the programs, and we’ll follow up with you.

Global Evangelisation Mission

This is the outreach wing of AFCM, UK, where the team travels to places around the world to spread the Word of God. The team normally gets an invitation or co-ordinates with a parish or retreat centre, gets there, stays with them, prays with the parish or group who’s organized the event. One day retreats/workshops are conducted at those places, and the team tries to visit as many schools and communities possible in the neighbourhood to preach the Word of God. As St Francis Xavier said - Many, many people hereabouts are not becoming Christians for one reason only: there is nobody to make them Christians.

The team has been to the remote villages in places like Punjab, Arunachal Pradesh in North India, Africa etc with this mission. If you want to invite the team over to your place whererver you are, please use the ‘Contact Us’ page on this website, and we’ll be in touch with you.

The Second Saturday Conventions started several years ago when Fr. Soji Olikkal, the Chaplain to the Syro-Malabar Catholics, started running retreats in his parish at Balsall Common.  The numbers attending these retreats grew dramatically, so the venue was changed first to St. Catherine's in Birmingham, and then to the Bethel Convention Centre in West Bromwich as thousands of Catholics from the Kerala community all over the country started to attend on a regular basis. They became so popular that one day Conventions were started in other parts of the country.  Now the team were inspired to open up the conventions to a wider audience and decided that the days should include an English stream as well as Malayalam, the native language of Kerala. Now, thousands of  multi ethnic, linguistic people gather together from all over the UK and abroad to celebrate their faith. Fr. Soji Olikkal
